Confirmed: Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj Curse Each Other Out on American Idol Set

Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj

By: A.J. Niles

Whatever honeymoon and pow-wow American Idol judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj enjoyed are over. The two are so abrasive towards one another, they cannot get through the audition stages of the show without engaging in a shouting match. Previously, the two fought off rumors of them not getting along but now, those efforts now seem futile.

There is footage floating around of Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj verbally assaulting each other during their stop in Charlotte, North Carolina.

 In the footage, obtained by TMZ, Nicki is clearly furious … shouting, “I told them, I’m not f*ckin’ putting up with her f*ckin’ highness over there.”

Sources say Nicki later threatened to “knock out” Mariah … but that part wasn’t captured on tape.

It all went down while the two were sitting at the judge’s table … with Keith Urban sitting in between them and Randy Jackson sitting on the far end, next to Mariah.

We’re told the whole thing exploded over a disagreement about a contestant’s performance.

According to sources:

Nicki Minaj walked off of set because Mariah Carey kept making jabs at her. Nicki’s manager and team convinced her to come back to the show. Mariah kept at it and called Nicki a bitch and then proceeded to cuss her out. Producers had to stop filming and call it a night.

We are not sure if American Idol will continue to shoot their episodes and the show’s producers or Fox spoke out on the incident.


Check out the footage below and let us know if this makes you excited to see the latest season of American Idol.



  1. Nicki has met her match in Mariah. Mariah has been a diva for years. She will not be backing down to Nicki’s a–. And she really doesn’t have to.

  2. I would say Nicki needs to respect Mariah (she’s a legend) but it’s no telling what Mariah said to her to cause her to go off like that. At the end of the day, even Nicki is still a woman, a person and someone who has feelings and wants to be respected. And knowing Mariah, she probably started that whole argument.

  3. I bet Simon Crowell knew these two women would do this well before hand, which is why he had the producers hire them.

  4. LOL Nicki looked real weak compared to Mariah. Mariah put her in her place without all that screaming and cursing Nicki was doing.

  5. Mimi needs the mess slapped outta her. She needs to learn how respect her castmates and realize she ain’t have a hit record in almost a decade.

    Respect the Barbz!

    1. Yeah right. Mariah Carey has sold upwards of 250 MILLION albums over here career while that wack a– imitator Nicki Minaj hasn’t even hit 4 million yet. She has fake t-ts, a fake a–, a fake nose, and multiple fake personalities while Mariah has real talent. The only thing Nicki deserves respect for is how quick she became famous and even that is up for debate. Normally defending Nicki Minaj never bothers me, but in this situation she is clearly no match for Mariah Carey and anyone who disagrees was probably born in the mid 90s…thus too young to make a judgement call on this situation. No offense

    1. I would agree with yall but Nicki and Mariah really do have stank attitudes. And both aren’t talented enough to act this well. I think a beef between them isn’t far fetched at all. And that’s why they were picked.
